Lets talk all things baby! I think I get the most questions about what baby products we REALLY use and how I like them. I have posted a lot of Baby Registry Must Haves, 2nd Baby Registry Musts, I have a shopping tab of baby products, and I have reviewed different products, but the other day, I realized, I have never shared our Most Used Baby Products. I have a lot of pregnant friends right now and this is by far the most asked question. New mamas want to know the essentials and what is worth the splurge. Here are my most used baby products:
Duh… this is probably the most obvious answer. You will need LOTS of diapers and wipes. We currently use the buybuy BABY brand and LOVE them!! They are such a great price and work fabulous. You can read my buybuy BABY brand diaper review for more info on them! Time of Use: EVERYDAY!
I highly recommend having two sets of these blankets. They are soft and so multi-functional. You can swaddle your baby, use them as a normal blanket, throw them over your carseat or stroller, use them as a nursing cover, use them to lay on the floor, or even as a blanket for yourself! My favorites for our little man are these buybuy BABY exclusive ED Ellen DeGeneres Crafted by aden + anais 4-Pack Boy Muslin Swaddles. I love the navy color and the patterns are so cute. Time of Use: EVERYDAY! (Brooke still uses them everyday at 2 1/2)
We don’t leave home without our wubbanub and a back up. Brooke had a giraffe and a lamby (which is how she got her nickname “lamby”). And, now brother has a giraffe and an elephant. They are just so convenient for multiple reasons. They help the pacifier stay in your baby’s mouth, they are cuddly just like a stuffed animal, and they are easy to find in your diaper bag/purse. Time of Use: Everyday until 9 months or so.
We used both the 4Moms MamaRoo and BounceRoo with Baby Kevin. The BounceRoo was a big MUST for our first 4 months with Baby Kevin. Lately, he has not wanted to sit in it anymore, so we have moved to the MamaRoo mainly when we need it. With Brooke, we only had the MamaRoo and we used it with her until about 7-8 months. She liked it a lot in the beginning. Time of Use: 4-8 months, multiple times a day
While the 4moms products are for those early infant days, playmats are too! We started using Brooke’s playmat at 6 weeks and she loved it. Baby Kevin started using his playmat about the same time and really enjoys it now. He just rolls around and tries to play with all the toys. Time of Use: 1-9 months, multiple times a day
Another all day everyday biggie is onesies! While I love a good cute 2 piece outfit, onesies are the most practical for the first few months of life. While you could let your little lay around in a diaper, clothes tend work good too and be more socially acceptable so stock up on those onesies. Time of Use: Birth – 1 year
